Necklace and Earrings from The Limited
I decided to ignore the weather for today and wear my cardigan anyways. I had bought this cardigan at Banana Republic a few weeks ago when they had a 30% off Family & Friends event and it was on sale for $35. I love the piping that wraps all the way around the front and I feel like it adds a modern twist to the traditional grandpa cardigan. I paired it with a sleeveless dress from Macy’s in their Junior’s BCX line. I’ve actually been really impressed with the BCX line at Macy’s as I feel that the styles are very work appropriate while still being very chic and trendy. I was also amazed that a size 3 fit me! I believe it’s the smallest size that they carry, and it certainly does run small!
Either way, I made the possible mistake of pairing a taupe on taupe. In my opinion, I felt that these taupe colors were different enough that it still paired up nicely. Adding a waist belt was the finishing touch as it gave the layering the shape that it needed to not look like a sack on me.
For my petite readers out there, the BR cardigan in XS did run a bit big as it was not a petite size. I ended up rolling up the sleeves a bit, but the fabric was thin enough that it didn’t look too bad.
P.S. It did get hot today and I was very almost regretting adding this cardigan… But I was stubborn about wanting to sport my cardigan for fall that I just grinned and beared it. ^_^
